Successful Strategies for Guided Math Groups: Nonlinguistic Representations

Posted on July 6, 2013. Filed under: Assessment, Common Core, Math Centers | Tags: , , , , , , , , |


Marzano (2001) found that nonlinguistic strategies move student achievement.  This is exactly aligned with the mathematical practices – using models, representations, sketches, drawings, diagrams and pictures to name a few. Make sure that in each unit of study you use these items.  Here are a few examples to get you started (there are lots more on my Pinterest boards).

Math Sketches

Flip Books

Tape/Bar Diagrams

Math Mind Maps

Thinking Math Maps

I am so excited!  I just can’t hide it…. Come on come on come on look at these posters!  These are great anchor charts to hang up to teach math content.  Math Anchor charts are a great visual scaffold and can be a reference for students as they are working in guided math groups and math centers!
